The Beans of China, Maine

We had a beautiful day for a bike ride in Lincolnville and Camden on Sunday, and Tammy led us out on a great route that shares many of the scenic back roads on the northern stretch of the BCM Lobster Ride and the East Coast Greenway. We topped off the ride with a stop at the Cellardoor Winery - always a nice treat. Our thanks to the winery staff for accommodating us and for Tammy for leading.  This Saturday we return to Vassalboro for a nicely brewed tour around China Lake and environs, including a potential stop at the Green Bean! Hope to see you on Saturday...
